The Skinny Cheese™ Cookbook Review and Giveaway

I was recently contacted by the folks over at President Cheese and asked if they could send me some coupons AND The Skinny Cheese™ Cookbook.

Well you don't have to twist my arm to make me say yes to cheese OR a cookbook, both rank pretty high in my life LOL  and even better, I get to giveaway some coupons for FREE cheese.  Come on now, you know you want some.


I browsed through the cookbook and was surprised at how many delicious recipes there were, 30 in all and a lot of them featuring fat free Feta Cheese......Feta cheese........drool!

I used one of my free coupons and actually got the Fat Free Ricotta Cheese to make Ricotta Potato Skins....Holy Moly were they good.

At first I thought my kids may turn their noses at them but after taking a bite out of mine they dove right in and all I coudl hear was oooohhhhh and aaahhhhhh.  SO GOOD!


Ricotta Potato Skins
The Skinny Cheese Cookbook

2 medium potatoes
2 cups cooked spinach (squeeze out any water)
2 cups Sorrento or Precious Fat Free or Low Fat Ricotta Cheese
4 scallions, chopped
Olive oil

Heat the oven to 420 degrees.

Wash the potatoes, slice in half and place in the oven for 40 minutes.

Take potatoes out of the oven and scoop out the middle.  Discard the inside portion you scooped out.

Top the skins with a splash of olive oil and place on the top rack of the oven under the grill for 3-5 minutes.

For the topping, mix the spinach, ricotta cheese and scallions.  Divide the mix into the potato halves and serve.

  1. Sorry, the delete was me. I forgot to leave my email address. :)

    I haven't ever met a cheese I don't like! The cheeses I always have on hand are bleu cheese, sharp cheddar, parmesan, and feta.

  2. I bought a lot of President Feta this summer - it was delicious in a whole wheat wrap with turkey and lettuce. Light, easy and low-cal.

  3. Without question, my favorite cheese is feta. Yummy!

  4. I like cambozla! A lot! Too much!
    And brie with jalapeno jelly....

  5. I rarely ues any of the excotic cheeses but really really like feta, & I got a real hankerin for swiss too. If you it got down to the best of the best its gotta be sharp chedder. Final answser Sharp chedder. Oh, by the way anything with potatoes and cheese has to be Great!!!

  6. I'm a good old cheddar gal myself. Can't beat the classic.

  7. I love all kinds of cheese--cheddar, mozarella, provolone, Monterey Jack--and lately I've been enjoying goat cheese. Please enter me in your draw. I would love to be a winner. And that recipe looks really yum.

  8. Provolone, I like white mild cheeses (so boring, I know!) but my husband has NEVER met a cheese he didn't like. :)

  9. Those look so yummy Sandra! I will have to give them a try! xxoo

  10. My favorite cheese is Havrati. I hate to admit this, but I've never tasted feta cheese. I bet that's Greek to a lot of you. I probably AM missing something. :(

  11. Keepin it classic and going shard cheddar!

  12. ooopppss...meant SHARP (not shard)

  13. I love all kinds. Well except blue cheese. lol

    Love swiss and provolone, think they are my favorites. and of course cheddar, oh and parmesan.

  14. In these hard times, I'm surprised you're telling us to "discard" the insides of the potatoes! Mash them up with a little butter, salt & milk & you have a side for dinner! 2 recipes in one.

    (I'm a pure cheddar gal myself!).

  15. I love feta cheese. There's a really good recipe on "A Year of Slow Cooking" for stuffed tomatoes that use feta cheese and they are so good!

  16. I love pepper jack cheese. rhisomers(at)gmail(dot)com

  17. I like mozzarella and my husband loves sharp cheddar.

  21. I am pretty basic with cheese, I haven't tried too many "different" kinds. I have had some smokey ones that are really good though. I need to experiment more! Thanks, great giveaway!
